Medical Imaging Solutions Group had a lawsuit filed against them by ODC. The company is suing for breach of contract and is requesting to have the sales and service contract voided. Back in 2011, ODC purchased an X-ray machine, an MRI machine and a CT scanner for just over $1.5 million, which included a service agreement from Medical Imaging Solutions.
Reportedly, the companies entered into three sales agreements for this medical equipment. Under the contract, there is a 60 month service agreement for each. Eventually, the equipment was installed, but since that time, the equipment has had a series of issues and problems. Per the complaint, it was stated that Medical Imaging Solutions did not have permission from the Texas Department of State Health Services to sell the equipment, which makes the contract invalid due to legal issues.
Business litigation can be challenging for companies to deal with, but having a thorough understanding of applicable laws can help. Gruma Corp. was faced with a lawsuit from Texas-based restaurant chain, Mission Burrito, which is owned by Mexican Restaurants. The two companies were in the middle of business litigation over trademark infringement. Now, one of the companies will be changing its name.
Gruma Corp. makes food products such as chips and tortillas under its Mission Brand. Mexican Restaurants decided to change its name and re-brand after a ruling from a judge went in favor of Gruma Corp. According to reports, the judge's ruling stated that the restaurant must place disclaimers on any type of advertisement, labels and signs. This also includes wrappers, packages and prints clearly stating that it is not in affiliation with Gruma Corp. The restaurant decided not to go this route as it may be too burdensome and decided it would prefer to re-brand.
A ride on a roller coaster turned tragic when a woman fell 75 feet to her death shortly after the ride took off. The woman's family filed a lawsuit against both Six Flags and the manufacturer. However, Texas Six Flags has joined in business litigation against the manufacturer. Six Flags claims the product was defective and dangerous. Who will win this battle?
An attorney is representing the manufacturer in this case and stated that it is baffling that Six Flags would even file a lawsuit since it participated in the design of the roller coaster. Also, the attorney claims that Six Flags is the one responsible for the woman's death by not adhering to appropriate safety procedures. Allegedly, the woman's lap band was too high, but had it been placed appropriately, the accident would not have happened.
When entering into a contract, it's essential to abide by the terms laid out. Failure to adhere to contract terms may result in a breach of contract lawsuit. This appears to be true for this case involving a Texas couple who took out an auto loan on a 2005 Mazda sedan.
Primary Financial Services filed a lawsuit against a couple in regard to an auto loan. The parties entered into a contract for financing a sedan which outlined that the couple must complete all payments owed, including interest. The company alleges that at some point in time, the couple failed to continue payments on the loan. When apparently notified that payment must be submitted, the couple also allegedly refused the pay off the remaining balance owed.
Highland Capital Management is a company that manages billions of dollars in assets. A case between a former executive and Highland Capital Management went to trial earlier this month. The business litigation stemmed from a bitter dispute over information, money and slander. The case is now in the hands of a Texas jury.
Back in 2012, a former executive testified against the company's co-founder in a divorce case. Previously, the employee had left the company over a payment dispute. Highland Capital Management filed a lawsuit against him and informed the court that he had taken trade secrets without having their consent. The company further claims that the former executive denied requests to return the belongings. The ex-employee is also being accused of making slanderous actions against the firm, which may have resulted in financial harm.
When companies do not agree, it can lead to a courtroom battle. Three large oil and gas companies are in the midst of a Texas business litigation. Energy Transfer Partners is accusing Enterprise and Enbridge of attempting to cut its company out of an agreement. However, Enterprise and Enbridge contend that there was never an agreement in the first place.
Jury selection is underway for a trial involving three big businesses that is set to last for weeks. Back in 2010, the owner of Enterprise reportedly offered Energy Transfer Partners a joint venture agreement to create a pipeline from an oil hub to refine and ship barrels of crude. In 2011, the companies had a meeting and entered into the agreement a short time afterward to ship a minimum of 100,000 barrels of oil on a daily basis. The companies were to share profits and liabilities down the middle.
Classes at area schools were temporarily canceled due to disputes. The business disputes between the Texas schools and city water company were over water bills. Recently, students were allowed to attend classes while the two companies negotiate.
The students had a longer winter break than expected, not because of an extended vacation but due to no water at the schools. For the past year, the city and the school district have disagreed about the rates. The battle started when the city allowed a water surcharge at $10 per individual. The school district was able to get the surcharge down to $6 per individual, but that did not last long before the rate was again increased to $14.
A hostile legal dispute has developed between Highland Capital Management and a former employee. The business litigation has resulted in at least 100 potential jurors appearing in a Texas courtroom. The company is claiming that the former employee defamed their character while the employee is claiming the opposite is true. The former employee further claims that the company tried to cost him his livelihood.
Highland Capital filed a lawsuit against a former employee who worked there for over 13 years. The company stated that he made defamatory remarks about the business to media outlets and also investors. The former employee issued a rebuttal against the allegations and stated that it was the company who tried to tarnish his reputation. He also claimed that the company refused to honor his payment request which, in turn, resulted in him resigning.
Macy's lawsuit with Martha Stewart has come to an end. The lawsuit was filed when Martha Stewart began engaging in the sale of her products at Texas-based J.C. Penney. Macy's stated that this was a breach of contract and that they had exclusive rights to Martha Stewart's home goods.
Back in 2012, Macy's filed a lawsuit against Martha Stewart Living to stop all sales of their home goods at J.C. Penney stores. The reason behind this was that Macy's had established exclusive rights to sell the merchandise in their stores, and this accounts for $27.7 billion of their revenue. Since then, Macy's and Martha Stewart have been able to resolve their legal matters and reach a settlement on all issues. The details of their settlement are not known and are not set to be released in the future.
